WW1 1916 Battle of Delville Wood

The battle of Delville wood was very near the Somme and brutal for all those involved. Not many survived but the mainly South African allied troops held on in the end against the Germans. Really telling photo, absolute devastation of the woods an carnage as far as the eye can see yet the troops are still manning the trench! Not much cover left from this part of the woods.
